Description


An affordable illustrated guide to the key terms and concepts of Mondrian's diverse oeuvre

German art historian and curator Ulf K ster entertainingly leads readers through well-known and lesser-known aspects of the life and work of Piet Mondrian (1872-1944).
Pivotal to modern art's move toward abstraction, Mondrian's oeuvre is extraordinarily versatile and complex. The artist was profoundly impressed by contemporary culture and found inspiration all around--from the patterns of the Dutch canal system to the rhythms of jazz and the foxtrot. The influence of his work can also be found all around--not only in abstract painting and art movements (such as Concrete art, Color Field painting, Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism) but also in design, architecture and fashion. Yves Saint-Laurent's famous "Mondrian Dress," for instance, made him a posthumous fashion icon. Piet Mondrian: A-Z demonstrates Mondrian's far-reaching influence.
Art historian Ulf K ster (born 1966) is a curator at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen/Basel since 2004, and the author of numerous publications, among them his book on Louise Bourgeois in Hatje Cantz's Art to Read series and Edward Hopper: A-Z.
